46 year old father of two. I've always been "chubby", but it never bothered me much. Halloween '09, I caught pneumonia and cracked two ribs due to coughing. After a short stay in the hospital, I decided to take a bit more care with my health. I stopped smoking (April 2, 2010). A couple of doctor visits later, I realized that my self-specified "freakout weight" of 200# was so far in the rearview mirror, I was in trouble.

Thing was, I didn't want a diet. I didn't want to make changes that I hated and that wouldn't stick with me. So I decided on Baby Steps. Make small, lifestyle habit changes that would lead to permanent health benefits, including weight control.

I went from 230ish to 188. And I kept it off for a year.... then put most of it right back on. So here I am to make another go at it.

Starting: 239-lbs Jan 7, 2016. Goal: 3-lbs/wk - 170-lbs June 16, 2016

Maintenance seems to be going fairly well. But man, it's difficult as shit to keep on it. "Oh, I'll just have this slice of pizza and a few beers. I'll ...

Going the wrong way.... I really need to get back on the diet watch. I'm starting active, but my mid-day snacking is outta control.
